Question about Olympus Camedia C-3030 Zoom Digital Camera
I know that consumer grade digital cameras like ours has a vast DOF by default. I find it very frustrating since I can't afford a professional digital camera yet. Is there any way I can narrow the DOF on my C3030Z and get that wonderful blurred out background? Even at f2.8(the widest apeture available on the C3030Z), I still get crystal clear background with my portrait/figure work.

Generally speaking, longer lenses have less depth of field than wide angle lens. You already know that larger aperatures also give you less depth of field. So, try a combination of both and hopefully, that should blur the background sufficiently. Also, longer focal lengths are better for portraiture anyway. By the way, I would consider the 3030 as a pretty advanced camera, even if it's not 'professional grade'.
